How to use the resources

The learning objects contained in the Information Literacy Resource Bank (ILRB) can be used in a variety of ways limited only by your own imagination! Typical examples include embedding them in PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, virtual learning environment (Learning Central) modules or printing them for use as handouts in teaching sessions.

Almost all of the resources have been packaged as zip files that contain everything you need to embed and use an entire learning object. The zip files can be freely downloaded from this site in accordance with the terms of use.
